Product details

  • In Italy a design is never just a product, but an expression of culture. There is a strongly held belief that good design should be implemented across all aspects of life

It documents the 110 most pioneering designs to come out of Italy, and explains why, with stunning images (including rare archival photographs, illustrations and patent drawings) and explanatory texts
